Famous Nigerian activist and social critic, Aisha Yesufu, has reacted to Governor Charles Soludo’s attack on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, saying the political class thinks they own Nigeria.
Yesufu also said the citizens must take hold of the power that belongs to them.
Recall that Governor Soludo had attacked Obi in a lengthy essay on Monday, claiming that he would not win the presidential election.
While throwing shade at Obi’s claim of making huge savings for Anambra State during his tenure, Soludo also said that governments exist to save lives and not to save money.
But taking to her verified Twitter handle in a series of tweets, Yesufu said the nonsense must stop.
“The political class think they own Nigeria. Their arrogance is out of this world. Even during elections, they do not hide their disdain for the citizens.
“The nonsense must stop. Citizens must take hold of the power that belongs to the people.
“Suddenly, Charles Soludo @CCSoludo has forgotten that he had to leave PDP to win the gubernatorial election in Anambra State. Power is sweet!
“You didn’t ask your friends in PDP why they didn’t think power should go to the South?”
